We are careful and do not use consent light-hearted as a legitimate ground for processing personal data as a one-size-fits-all solution. We adopted all the measures that are legally required for its work in commercial intermediation in digital marketing and, more specifically, in the field of protection of personal data.
MPP handles everyone’s privacy carefully. In order to do so, MPP adheres to privacy legislation, as stipulated in this section, in addition to legal standards which are dictated by approved codes of conduct. MPP complies with the requirements of the current applicable privacy legislation for an accurate processing of personal data, where under The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018.
Pursuant to California’s privacy law, into effect on 1st January 2020, we have revised our Privacy Notice to include the following principles of data processing.
Consent and explicit opt-in
In accordance with our data processing operations we have checked if your consent is the most appropriate basis for processing. We ask our customers and respondents to positively and explicitly opt-in prior to any start of the processing. The request for consent to you is made prominent and separate from any conditions that may apply to the promotions you have participated. Your consent is (also) used to administer the campaigns you are interested in. If you withdraw consent you contact data is blocked until you have given your consent again. Any given consent is never made on a default mode. We keep a record of when and how we received your consent on an individual identifiable basis. We also keep a record of exactly what you were shown or told at the time of participating to the campaign. For email specifically, by registering, you are giving explicit consent (permission) for your email to be shared with third parties for the purpose of sending third party email communications until you withdraw your permission.
Should you have questions about the campaign to which you participated in, then please contact our privacy officer at [email protected] who can reply to you directly for any question or concern you may have.
We would like to specify to you why we process data and what we’re going to do with it, for which purposes data are going to be used and further processed.
Consent or withdraw
We give individual options to consent or positively and explicitly opt-in to different purposes and types of processing. We name our organisation and any third party businesses who will be relying on the consent at the moment of collecting your data. We inform our customers and respondents that they can withdraw or refuse their consent without detriment. We perform on withdrawals of consent as soon as we can and direct our customers and respondents how to do so. In offering online communication directly to our customers and respondents we seek consent in accordance with and necessary for the purposes of our data processing operations and our relation with you. We have age-verification measures (and parental-consent measures for younger children) in place to avoid that children (below 13) and youngsters (13-18) can participate to our services.
